COST supports Water Innovation Europe
15 May 2012 — 16 May 2012
COST is delighted to support Water Innovation Europe and reaffirms its commitment to research in the water sector. Water Innovation Europe is an event led jointly by The European Water Platform (WssTP) and ACQUEAU, the EUREKA Cluster for water. It aims to push forward the central initiative of the European water sector – innovative collaboration for sustainable & competitive results – through active discussion and debate.
In answer to the pressing need to better manage the world’s water resources and improve their quality, COST reaffirms its commitment to research in water-related issues. COST has contributed throughout the years to scientific cooperation that had water at its core, and is now delighted to support the conference 'Water Innovation Europe'.
COST Actions respond to the needs of nine scientific Domains, including Food and Agriculture (FA) and Earth System Science and Environmental Management (ESSEM) and Forests, their Products and Services (FPS). Several COST Actions in these Domains are working on water resources and are currently combating water-related issues.
